Alice's note reads,"Fine bright day, snow 10 ft. 1896. 11.20 a.m." In this photo, one of the city's "White Wings" pauses from snow shoveling to be photographed. Imagine Alice carrying fifty pounds of photography equipment from Staten Island to Manhattan through ten feet of snow to capture this moment.
